View Full Version : mac time incorrect after rebooting from windows

Just installed win 7 via boot camp on my new iMac. When I boot back to Mac the time has advanced 8 hours. Help.

I had a similar problem and also started a thread (http://forums.mactalk.com.au/14/72557-date-time-wrong.html) on the issue. Seems to be a common BootCamp problem. Don't worry, it rectifies itself. :)

IIRC it's because the Mac saves the current time as UTC (GMT +0) and adjusts for your location, whereas Windows assumes the saved (UTC) time is your current local time. Or maybe I have that backwards...

Anyway, this fix (http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=3807859&postcount=3) worked for me.
